4. Marina Barrage
For families who enjoy a laid-back countdown, here’s another spot where you can lay out a picnic mat in anticipation for the fireworks. With Satay by the Bay only 7 minutes away, you can indulge in your favourite hawker affair as you watch the fireworks go off in true-blue Singaporean style.

Location: 18 Marina Gardens Drive
6. Mount Faber Peak
Looking for a little adventure? Opt for a hike up Mount Faber Peak with your kids to catch the fireworks in full splendour. However, if you’re cautious about its dimness during the evening, we suggest taking the two-way cable car ride which takes you across the Sentosa-Mount Faber line.
There’s Arbora Hilltop Garden to chill out and kill some time!
Location: 109 Mount Faber Road
7. Esplanade Rooftop Terrace
While we know Merlion Park may offer stunning views, the Esplanade Rooftop Terrace can also give you a splendid view of the city’s skylines. Best part? It’s a little more obscure – so hopefully, you won’t have to jostle with the rest.
Location: 1 Esplanade Drive
8. Tampines Hub
Tampines Hub does not disappoint when it comes to its festivities. This New Year, Easties can come together to celebrate ‘Countdown to Magical Moments 2023’ with a performances, festivities, and of course – fireworks.

9. Bedok Reservoir
To catch the fireworks going off at Tampines Hub, head over to Bedok Reservoir to catch the show in action. Now refurbished, you can take a stroll along its boardwalk and enjoy the hip F&B spots in the area before midnight strikes.
Location: Bedok Reservoir Park
10. Jurong Lake Gardens
A tranquil dwelling spot, Jurong Lake Gardens offers a breathtaking landscape overlooking residential areas of the West. Netizens have advised that Clusia Cove would be a decent spot to watch New Year fireworks 2022.

11. Boon Lay (Jurong Central Park)
Connected to Jurong Lake Gardens, this park located closer to Boon Lay also allows you a view of the fireworks from its open fields.
Location: Boon Lay Way
12. Tiong Bahru (Skyville @ Dawson)
Considering that Tiong Bahru is pretty much town-ish, it is no surprise you might find a landmark to watch New Year fireworks 2022.
We suggest going up to Skyville @ Dawson on the 47th floor before midnight to snag a spot for the NYE countdown. Even without the fireworks, you’d already be in love with the scenery from up there!
If you’re going here, please remember to be considerate towards the residents! Be mindful of your volume, and remember to clean up anything you might be leaving behind.
Location: 86 Dawson Road
13. Woodlands Townpark East
Those seeking out for obscure firework spots earlier this year during NDP recommended Woodlands Townpark East. They liked this hidden gem for its high vantage point of 30m, with a short hike this this hilltop to catch a clear view of the fireworks.
Location: 3 Woodlands Street 13
14. Bishan (Open Field next to Junction 8)
During the past few years, the open field next to Bishan’s Junction 8 has been a consistent spot for NYE and NDP fireworks. We are guessing that those festivities will not be different this year!
Location: 9 Bishan Pl
